Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Rita and in my search for my ancestors I have started trying to take as many pics in the cemeteries as I possibly can with the hopes that it may help someone else with their search. I never realized how important it is to keep cemetery records until I could not locate my great grandparents. I have now found them...thanks to some wonderful people helping me.

I will happily transfer any of your family's memorials over to you that I have posted or post any information you may have for the memorial with the following exception:
Recently, I have been sent obits to add to memorials that have been copied from other websites. Do not send me obits that have been copied from other websites. The researchers on these sites spend hours transcribing from microfilm and newspapers. This is very unethical to copy their work and I will not add them.

My surnames for my personal family research are Jines, Robinson, Crow, Kennedy, England, Harris, Breece, Pace, Joyce/Joice, Cotham, Wade, Rainey and Eason to name a few.

Happy Researching!

Your Family
Rita .. Nice work on the Memorials regarding your family lines in Hickman County, TN

I am fairly certain the PACE line goes back to Richard Pace of the Jamestown Colony circa early 1600s ..DNA tests etc ...

Do a goggle search - Richard Pace of Jamestown

Before you ask .. I am not kin to the PACEs.

Hi I am the great grand daughter of a memorial and grave picture on here for Bedford Forrest Griffith and Opal Whitaker Griffith. If anyone has any information on their descendants. My maternal GM (dorothy alice griffith harvey) was their last child who was given up for adoption at St. Peter's orphanage in Memphis.

RE: Harris and Breece
Rita, we have communicated in the past and as I recall you are in Memphis.

I would be happy to share what I have with You, and have a tree on Ancestry which is listed as "Breece/Davidson", I think I have seen your postings on Ancestry.

I am sure you are aware that your grandmother Frances "Fanny" (Baker) Harris was a sister to John Baker who married Cassie Breece, sister to my gg-grandfather, William Breece.
